US Civil War General John Sedgwick

Among his last words were, "they couldn't hit an elephant at this distance". Moments later he was shot under his left eye and fell down dead.

Evidently at least one of the Confederate sharp shooters that day was up to the task.

I don't want to be a pest but it's Brute and not Brut. The vocative of Brutus is Brute.

Sorry for being such a smart-**** :/
It's just that Latin and Greek were so rammed into my head that I still know all that grammar. Our teacher was horribly disciplined and was very severe.
